They should hold changelogs for the development release as well, since
thats the place aptitude goes to fetch the changelog for a package.
Dead links could result from changelogs being updated later than or the other way round, so I think this should be
rather considered as bug. I CC'ed ubuntu-devel in the hope that
someone can clarify on this point.
